Phúc Kiến Temple (Chinese Temple)
After purchasing the entry ticket to the ancient town, we walked to Phuc Kien Temple - it was built by the Chinese in 17th century as an Assembly Hall but later converted into a temple dedicated to the goddess of sea who protects sailors. It is a photogenic monument with ornate gate and colorful courtyard.
Lien Hoa Company
Hands down our best meal in Vietnam. Given the culture of vegetarianism that seems to pervade through the city of Hue, finding a vegetarian meal would not have been tough in any case, but we hit a jackpot with Lien Hoa. The setting itself is quite lovely, with a tiny bonsai garden that greets you at the entrance. Our lovely waiter (who spoke precisely three words of English) smilingly suggested we try the fried spring rolls, a veg steam pot, and some veggies in tomato sauce, and we willingly obliged. Absolutely delicious. Can't recommend highly enough.
